If you're not reading Fang's Forum, you're really missing out on some great writing.
Some favorite quips from recent blog posts:
On music videos by Croatia's Johnny Cash: "They could have been shot by Matthew Brady 150 years ago if Brady made music videos instead of battlefield corpsescapes."
On Johnny Cash's American VI: "Only Cash could sing the words, 'Oh Death, where is thy sting?' not as self-pity or a brash challenge, but rather as a teasing lover to a would-be paramour. Cheeky and cool."
From Dear Tiger Woods": "Great speech. I wonder if Chris Matthews forgot you were black for a while."
Experiencing Mountain Dew: "like drinking a sweetened industrial solvent."
On our impending move to another university town: "I keep trying for a passable brave face for her, but all I’ve come up with so far is a perfectly-realized petulant sulk."
Living with Fang keeps me humble about all those expensive degrees I spent a dozen years pursuing. Dude can write circles around me, and his only diploma is from Amphitheater High School in Tucson, Arizona.
Go check him out. And then offer him a job, 'cause we need to get the man some bifocals:
He is indeed awesome. I'm still LOL about the Chris Matthews comment (thanks to Jon Stewart for me to get that -- oh, and to my hubby for watching it).
Anyway... from his comments here one can already sense he's a great writer with an unparalleled sense of humor. I wish I could be 1/10th as humorous, but I can appreciate it in other people, if that's any consolation.
P.S. Does he cook? (random, out of the blue question, but I'll explain -- I joke, seriously though, that K would be the perfect husband, if only he could cook or help cook, sigh, otherwise, he's perfect, he really is ;-).
Oh yeah, and I still have to smile every time I remember what he wrote in his blog about him being/having a phd by marriage. :-)
Alas, he only cooks for the boy, as his specialty is meat, meat, and more meat.
But, like most men, he does do dishes...
I read the blog. Is he that funny in real life? (Comment in the works for your previous post.)
Steve, yes, he's a hoot and a half. I hope someday the two of you can meet.
I love this Fang-centric post. I recall during BlogHer, we had fun exchanging Fang stories - the giggles were nonstop. He still makes me laugh more than anyone. My favorite, when I asked him why he was growing a moustache:
"I need an oasis of hairiness to break up my face."
I mean, why get married unless there's going to be guaranteed entertainment?
